“I wonder if you will ever know how I love Sagamore Hill,” Theodore Roosevelt, just hours before he breathed his last breath, on Jan 6, 1919. He is long gone, but the house lives on, an enticing entryway to the past, and surely the most vividly personal of the presidential shrines. Its 23 rooms retain their original furnishings and knickknacks and the profusion of stuffed animal heads, bear rugs, weird furniture, and miles of books that Roosevelt amassed and displayed. A most emphatically family home, a place where children ran wild and Roosevelt, in some ways an overgrown child himself, expressed every facet of his outsize personality. Experience a guided tour of the Queen Ann home that served as a refuge for the popular leader and the summer White house from 1902-1908. Enjoy a scrumptious lunch at Wild Honey, a local eatery housed in the location that was once Roosevelt’s office building. Enjoy a “bully” of a day.
